Chocolate Hemp Smoothie

Oh HI Sunday friends! It’s a very special occasion when I pop in on a Sunday morning. Mother’s day is coming up in just a couple weeks and to celebrate (a bit early) we’ve got a really great giveaway for you today!! I’ve teamed up for a few of my favorite bloggers to giveaway a Vitamix blender (!!!!). I REALLY really wish that I could win it but I’m happy knowing that it will go to one of you :)

Vitamix very generously donated this blender for our giveaway and as a way to celebrate all you lovely moms out there. THIS is the exact blender that we’re giving away.

I don’t have a Vitamix but it’s at the TOP of my wishlist. I almost broke down and bought myself one when I started making my Smoothie Ebook since I was using my blender literally multiple times per day. And even now, I use my blender at least about once a day. I WILL be getting my hands on one of those coveted blenders in the near future!

In honor of our giveaway, I’m sharing my new go to smoothie recipe with you, this Chocolate Hemp Smoothie.

Chocolate Hemp Smoothie

I ordered a bag of THESE Hemp Seeds a few weeks ago and have been putting them in/ on ALL the things.

Although I didn’t add it in the recipe, this smoothie is perfect for adding in a big ole scoop of protein powder. But, maybe that’s every smoothie?

Either way, this smoothie is DELICIOUS and you should certainly try making it asap!!

Happy pre-mothers day!! Don’t forget our giveaway below and good luck!
